Russian Fairytale — Big slouchy bag. Slight Seconds.
Please note that all of this batch of these beautiful bags are slight seconds. The fabric is our usual quality and the print quality is even better than usual - with lovely, vivid colours and sharp images.
However, the workshop sewing these made a poor job of the linings and zips and so we had to have these all redone in a workshop in Ireland. There was one small strip of lining that could not be replaced and this may fray. We are therefore selling the bags at a very special discount as "seconds" and we won't be able to take returns on the basis of these faults.
They are a tremendous bargain if you don't mind this - the bags will still look as beautiful as ever when worn.
The design is based on "Palekh" art from antique Russian lacquered boxes. Striking, romantic and just a little bit magical. Fun to wear, this large bag is practical enough for everyday and striking enough to feel special. It's also got loads of pockets, so you can carry everything you need.
